    I always have a couple of large pieces (about 3x5ft) to sit/kneel on when doing DIY at below waist height.
    Easy on the knees to kneel on and reflects heat back at you when sitting.
    Could you tape them inside large black bin bags and use it as a decent sized gardening kneeling pad?
    (For that I use bubble wrap... but polystyrene would work just as well , it's just more fragile)

    Cheers folks.

    I'll use some to insulate seed trays next spring and the kneeling pad idea is a great suggestion - I'll definitely be doing that (not that I'm getting older or anything).

    If you buy meat from supermarkets, and you chop and change between, you can end up with good-sized black plastic tubs and matching clear tops - instant propogator
